Abstract
A high bandwidth, low latency interconnect network is a critical component in the design of future High Performance Computing (HPC) Systems. With a number of network topologies being proposed for future HPC systems, the research community has turned to simulation to find a topology that yields high performance. Among the network topologies available for HPC networks, one emerging class of networks are the low-diameter, low-latency topologies such as the dragonfly that use high-radix routers to yield high bisection bandwidth. Another candidate is the torus network topology that uses multidimensional network links to improve path diversity and exploit locality between nodes. Exploring the design space of these candidate interconnects by using simulation, before building real HPC systems, is critical.
